The Welsh Government is spending further £7.595 million of Town Centre Loans to revitalise town centres across the country.
The £20m Town Centre Loans Fund aims to bring empty sites in Welsh high streets back into use.
The Welsh Government has said once the loans are repaid, the money will be used again to fund new loans.
The money will be spent on the following projects:
- Gwynedd: £500,000 loan to extend the regeneration programme in Caernarfon and Bangor town centres, and to also extend the regeneration work into Bethesda;
- Rhondda Cynon Taf: £975,000 to help redevelop buildings in Aberdare and Pontypridd town centres;
- Swansea: £2,000,000 to regenerate sites across the city centre.
